PV Tech caught up with Sujoy Ghosh, country head, India, for US-based thin-film PV manufacturer and project developer First Solar, in the firm’s Delhi office to discuss signs of developers in India engaging in new module-buying strategies, the country’s lukewarm relationship with trackers, and what India’s real power demand looks like.
Leading solar tracking company NEXTracker said it had achieved 100% on-time delivery for Enel Green Power’s 754MW PV power plant in Mexico, which has deployed its Gen2 ‘NX Horizon’ self-powered tracker system.
Adding energy storage gives solar developers and the industry in general the ability to “keep going”, while offering both lithium and flow battery systems covers a “wide-range of use cases”, NEXTracker CEO Dan Shugar has said.
NEXTracker, a Flex company has launched ‘TrueCapture’, a first-of-its-kind intelligent, self-adjusting tracker control system for solar power plants. TrueCapture’s technology is designed to continuously refine the tracking algorithm of each individual solar array in response to existing site and weather conditions.
Solar PV tracking equipment provider Soltec announced that it is supplying 28MW of its SF Utility horizontal single-axis tracker to a PV project being constructed in the municipality of Estill, South Carolina.
NEXTracker has started supplying its single-axis trackers to what it claims to be the largest solar plant in the Western Hemisphere at around 750MW capacity, with more than 200MW of trackers already delivered to the site in Mexico.
